Christ Church has a long tradition of amateur dramatics with the first dramatic society starting in the 1920's. In 1933 a re-built society proudly claimed, "We shall soon make our name in Bolton".
The society has gone though several 'rejuvenations', re-forming in 1951 and again in the early 1990's as an annual pantomime. The current 'Christ Church Players' was formed by Jeanne Lonnen in the year 2000 and has put on a play in February in the parish centre every year since. The CC Players are members of 'BATS' (Bolton Amateur Theatre Societies) and the plays and actors have won many awards at the annual presentation evenings.
